Hello "Devotional - Snows Church"
I haven't seen you here before...welcome to our world. I may be able to assist with your inquiry. You seem to be confused in a couple of different ways which may explain your lack of knowledge.
First, this may appear to be a minor point through your looking glass but, trust me, it isn't: you used a capital "G" for God in your opening declaration but quickly followed-up with a small "g" for god in your question. That's something that will need to be resolved.
Second, your opening declaration is spoken as a fact. How do you know it is true? Are you Ggod? By what method do you measure "many?" If more than two people are around me at any given time, I feel that it is too "many." (hence, my affinity for anonymous hotels in anonymous cities with phone unplugged). Is two too "many" out of 6-billion in your eyes of the world?
...but those are actually pithy issues. It is the framework within which you are living that is causing the distress. Asking for an explanation of "How to know god" is akin to ...hmmm, what shall we say........as well to count the angels dancing on a pin.
My best advice is to reframe from asking questions and just "be still." You will be amazed with what you will find as the world goes by all lost in dreaming --- RisingAshes

no disrepect man but i find it funny how some ppl tell other ppl wat to do like they are a god. you really dont have to read these and respond. of 6 billion ppl how many know of jerry garcia in fact how many know you i went to catholic school and to this day 41 yrs later i have never known god nor does he really know me .it is correct to say there is a place and time for everything. it isnt correct to say you cant. it happens alot in here i notice. you seem to have to join a clique in here to get someone to respond to even the simplest ? then there are those that have to have it known they run this deal its ok to be a follower but at some point someone needs to lead and it would be best if it was led by good example than to get someone to follow by bad ones i am not singling out anyone in particular. 1 kind word is all that separates us from being a bad example there is more to life then religion politics and the internet archive trust me if you personally feel 2 ppl are a crowd maybe its an issue within yourself god doesnt do the thinking for you. you have free reign over your thoughts. so i say go out get away from this archive and do something nice for a fellow thinker the rewards are much more fulfilling then gettin the download of a grateful dead show .like my metal heads say jerrys dead phish sux get a job hippie lmao peace

my friend seems all you know is jack schitt wat you seem to miss out on is you create your own life whether anti social or psychotic or selfishness you have no bearing on my life i am not a follower like yourself god cant save me only i can save me,with my mind. i dont really dwell on my past. mistakes are part of life .im not stuck or sinking. i cant sit here doin nothin with my life and say if i pray hard enough god will fix it. only i can fix my blunders wonder how long its gonna take for god to fix the ppl of famine, war, politcal downfalls,disease and get us out of this hell he created humor is part of sanity as for suffering thats also part of life bones heal death kills life sucks and we all deal with it differently. i cant say id let someone just push me around so they feel powerful esp. since you only have the internet to make you feel this power. god cant save you now just ask him you will wake up tomorrow knowing you arent the eyes of the world but another insigificant soul in a life where no one cares only about themselves and how to fuck the next person over cuz after all god will save us all right maybe the next time you talk to god ask him why he kills babies or how much of a cut hes gettin in the oil business oh wait thats the devil gw bush ps i only answered this cuz you said not too i will defend myself with my life

"...I couldn't but surmise that the devil, looking at the cruel wars that Christianity has occasioned, the persecutions, the tortures Christian has inflicted on Christian, the unkindness, the hypocracy, the intolerance, must consider the balance sheet with complacency. And when he remembers that it has laid upon mankind the bitter burden of the sense of sin that has darkened the beauty of the starry night and cast a baleful shadow on the passing plesures of a world to be enjoyed, he must chuckle as he murmurs: give the devil his due." [W. Somerset Maugham, "The Razor's Edge"]

D'you remember how Jesus was led into the wilderness and fasted forty days? Then, when he was a-hungered, the devil came to him and said: If thou be the son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But Jesus resisted the temptation. Then the devil set him on a pinnacle of the temple and said to him: If thou be the son of God, cast thyself down. For angels had charge of him and would bear him up. But again Jesus resisted. Then the devil took him into a high mountain and showed him the kingdoms of the world and said that he would give them to him if he would fall down and worship him. But Jesus said: Get thee hence, Satan. That's the end of the story according to the good simple Matthew. But it wasn't. The devil was sly and he came to Jesus once more and said: If thou will accept shame and disgrace, scourging, a crown of thorns and death on the cross thou shalt save the human race, for greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Jesus fell. The devil laughed till his sides ached, for he knew the evil men would commit in the name of their redeemer.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)
The Razor's Edge, 1944
Chapter 5, iv

..oh, my God, please tell me that you didn't take my post seriously.....you didn't, did you? I didn't even read your original post; I was scrolling through looking for something and I noticed your style of writing. When I glanced at it I saw the 6-billion thing and realized that whatever you were sayin', you were sayin' it to me.

These dudes (robthewordsmith, Jerrob Hungar, BryanE, midnight sun, ghostofpig, and the list goes on and on) -- these dudes got me runnin' all over the web beginning with that "Unbroken Chain" post that spirals out into a lot of great spaces. I'm tryin' to learn and absorb as much as possible. I needed to take a break and you provided me a perfect opportunity with your style of writing....so I tried it and was messing around with the your style and threw in some content as well not knowing if it was relevant or not to your post.

Your style of writing felt like a pedal-to-the-medal, stream-of-consciousness, no filter, automatic shotgun method --- is that an accurate description?

Anyway, nagdot, though I really was sincere in responding to "Devotional's" post, I was just messin' around responding to yours and thought you would realize it immediately the same way the rest of the crew did. So it goes.

Let me know if I can make it up to you by sending some of Hunter's cd's. --- AshesRising (Jerri1031-dp3 AT yahoo DOT com)
